Residents at Alexandra Care Home are delighted to have received a selection of dignity napkins created by the pupils at Wargrave House School, a specialist college for children and young people diagnosed with autistic spectrum disorder.
Dignity napkins are used by older people who may need protection for their clothes while eating. Home Manager, Wendy Martindale, said: “Fabrics that looks like an ordinary item of clothing rather than a traditional napkin are a great idea and these scarves are absolutely lovely."
The children recycled scarves and shawls and sewed buttons and ribbons on so that residents can pop them on when needed. The pupils also sent beautiful handmade cards which included a message inside to say ‘We hope you enjoy using our dignity napkins’.
Resident Marian said: “Oh what a good idea, they’re just lovely. It’s marvellous what children can do these days. How kind and thoughtful of them all.”
Marian and her fellow residents Ena and Jean enjoyed modelling the new clothes protectors for photographs which have been sent to Wargrave School to show the pupils how much their kindness and creativity are appreciated.
